McVitie's Japanese style -- ST PHOTOS: TED CHEN

McVitie's is a venerable British brand that has been making biscuits, including its signature digestives, since 1830. Dependably delicious, they are great dunked into milky tea. Through the years, it has come to the rescue of office workers, housewives and others in need of a tea break.

Trust the Japanese to come up with their own version.

A recent visit to Japanese snack shop Yamakawa Super turned up four variations on the digestives. They come in small packets, each with a handful of mini sandwich cookies.

Creamy Caramel ($3 for a 44g pack) is the best one, with a milky, slightly salty caramel filling. The biscuits are crisp and will stand up to dunking in tea, after you lick off the filling. Uji Matcha ($3 for a 44g pack) already has bitter green tea in the filling, and is good with the slightly sweet chocolate digestives.

Those who like minty chocolates will take to Sweet Mint ($2.80 for a 44g pack), with a vibrant filling. Crisp chocolate biscuits are a good foil for the mint.

The last flavour, Royal Milk Tea ($3 for a 44g pack), tastes just like digestives dunked in milky tea, except that it stays crispy.

All four are good for a fun snack and the small servings should not bring on too much guilt.
